Lisa in front of the famous Lighthouse Restaurant on Baros
I am sure even the small island paradise of Baros can present challenges and everyday grind, but I can't think of a more lovely work environment. Like fluffing up the clouds inside the pearly gates. Not too shabby. Lisa Jakobsson, Swedish girl from Lund in the far south of Sweden, landed a job as quality assurance manager on Baros and started working there 9 months ago. Her job means having constant contact with guests, making sure they stay happy and content with the resort, and if not, acting upon the feedback she gets. Since Baros has such an amazing reputation to preserve, being one of the top resorts in the world, this is no doubt a full time job even though Lisa assures me more or less that everyone is very nice. Lisa herself is a sweetheart, I can't imagine the guest who can be, or indeed stay, upset with her for long. :-)

She tells me she is incredibly proud of working on Baros and that Shuhan is indeed a great boss with a huge heart for both guests and staff. Occasionally she gets the dreaded "Island fever" (Baros is 300 x 400 meters...) ;-) but can have a day off in Malé or occaisonally go on longer holidays like recently to Australia. She certainly embodies what Baros is about, another of Baros' outstanding staff members. I look forward to seeing her on the island when we visit Baros in January 2016! Always wonderful to see a fellow swede abroad. Read more about BAROS here.
This sight will greet you on arrival to Baros. Beautiful jungle and beautiful Lisa
